TCYR continue to Rumble
Andrew D. Cameron | Kennett Square, PA | 08/14/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Tommy and the boys continue to rock with such instant classics as Nice n' Naughty, Hard As A Rock, and Rock With You, which features every band member singing a part of the song live. This band has more talent than most bands that acheieve greater commercial success. CBS failed to properly promote these guys and tried to soften their sound.
The live shows were always the most unbelievable rockin' shows that rival any band in history. If TCYR released a live album, much like Peter Frampton they would top the charts worldwide.
The show started stronng and built to a fevered pitch. A night at any of the Philly Carbarets was a night well-spent, and TCYR would rock for 3-1/2 hours straight, playing their own music with a few good cover tunes.
Guitar Trouble is reminiscent of their live shows, but has the obvious commercial influences that ultimately poisoned TCYR when they tried to released their 3rd album "Neuroticus Maximus". CBS told Tommy they didn't like it and dropped him, instead of letting one of the best guitarists in the world show the world what made him famous.
It's the world's loss and your fans miss you.
The softened sound is the only reason I could not give this effort 5 stars. Tommy's other material that was on his first release "Walkin' On The Water" and his unreleased music is some of the best music ever written and performed. Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers live rate 10 stars.
Tommy, you need to resurract your career with TCYR, get out of the blues bars, release a live album, and save the world from the popsters that dominate radio today.
